mirror, mirror on the wall

do you ever stalk retail items? you know, it's love at first sight but you're just not too sure you're ready to commit? i do it far too often. too many 'what ifs'...what if i bring it home and don't use it, don't wear it, or worse..don't like it?



oh boy...this happened to me and the mirror i've been admiring at Michaels for the past three-ish months. i would check out this lovely thing everytime i was at Michaels, hoping it was cheap enough for me to bring home (then i wouldn't feel as bad about the 'what ifs').  i dreamed about this mirror and how my house might not look so boring if she was displayed nicely on my wall. so finally, i'd had enough, it was time to bring her home with me.  okay actually it was my husband who decided this, he got sick of hearing me talk longingly about a mirror. she is now proudly hung on my wall and i couldn't be happier.

ever do this?

I do that ALL the time. I really want the sunburst wire wall art from West Elm, but it's a pretty $50... Check it out here: http://www.westelm.com/products/a020/?pkey=x|4|1||6|sunburst%20wire%20wall%20art||0&cm_src=SCH

Also, I have no idea where I'd put it. But that's besides the point... right?

Oh yes! I have a hard time going into anthropologie because i never leave with anything but I want sooo much!

I do that a lot with clothes too. If it's a reasonable price, my method is to go home and if I'm still wishing for whatever it was 2 or 3 days later I'll go get it :)
